i have been obsessed with emmanuelle's thigh high boots from the first instant i laid eyes on them. thigh high boots are ever so practical too! look- you can even ride a bike in them (or at least pose on one) i have been searching high and low for the perfect pair. they must be suede, have a slightly rounded toe, covered slightly chunky heel (the louboutin monica will not do-too narrow). i think i have found the perfect pair: jimmy choo hampton $1300 sold out at net-a-porter. sigh. perhaps i have to look at a hoochie store like bebe or guess for a knock off :(

I love those white boots. I have a pair of black suede from a few years ago.

I rarely ever have any regrets, but i've always kicked myself for not purchasing a pair of Michael Kors over the knee flat black suede boots. I can totally imagine them now, and all the ways i could wear them. God damn it! If you find any $400 (roughly) versions let me know...

Like you, I love thigh highs, but you have to be careful not to cross the hooker line. I stopped wearing mine after a guy drove up to me and asked "how much".
